Footnote on the last page of a book review stating that the author, Khizr Muazzam Khan, obtained a U.S. law degree from the University of Missouri, not Harvard Law School, and that he was director of an Islamic center in Houston, TX

(Aug. 3, 2016) — Although the website of DNC speaker and Gold Star father Khizr Khan was removed from the internet at some point on Tuesday, an archive of its home page at the Wayback Machine shows that Khan claimed to have earned law degrees from “University Law College, Punjab University and LL.M from the Harvard Law School.”

A book review of the work “Human Rights in Islam” authored by “Khizr Muazzam Khan” in 1982 or afterward notes in a final footnote that Khan earned his first law degree at the University of Punjab, Pakistan, then earned an L.L.M. from the University of Missouri in 1982.  There is no mention of Harvard University.

The Pakistani institution calls itself “University of the Punjab.”

An article published at The Washington Post on March 22, 2005 and re-released after Khan gave a political speech against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump last Thursday against the backdrop of the death of his son, Capt. Humayun Khan, in Iraq in 2004, reports that the Khan family arrived in the U.S. “in the 1970s.”

There was no mention of Harvard in The Post article.  On July 29, Politico reported, “In 2005, Khan talked about his late son to the Washington Post. He recounted the family’s journey from Pakistan to the United Arab Emirates, and from there to Boston, where Khan completed his L.L.M at Harvard University. The family moved to Maryland in time for Humayun to go to high school.”

On Monday, Breitbart News reported that Khan, through his former employer — a large Washington, DC law firm — has close ties to the Clintons, Saudi Arabia, and, by extension, the Clinton Foundation, which is under FBI and IRS investigation.  “Khizr Khan has all sorts of financial, legal, and political connections to the Clintons through his old law firm, the mega-D.C. firm Hogan Lovells LLP. That firm did Hillary Clinton’s taxes for years, starting when Khan still worked there involved in, according to his own website, matters ‘firm wide’—back in 2004. It also has represented, for years, the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States. Saudi Arabia, of course, is a Clinton Foundation donor which—along with the mega-bundlers of thousands upon thousands in political donations to both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016—plays right into the ‘Clinton Cash’ narrative,” Breitbart wrote.

Breitbart has illustrated that the mainstream media has not researched Khan’s professional associations, whose writers have dismissed as an “oppo dump.”

The footnote at the end of Khan’s book review also indicates that at the time it was written, Khan was “Director, Islamic Center Houston.”

There are now at least five “Islamic centers” in Houston which The Post & Email has begun to contact to inquire if Khan was the director at any time.

During his DNC speech, Khan accused Trump of having sacrificed “nothing and no one,” a claim Trump refuted on Twitter the following day, after which congressional Republicans, the mainstream media and professional pundits condemned him for “attacking a Gold Star family.”

While he spoke, Khan portrayed himself and his family as patriotic, loyal Americans. However, he has written extensively on Sharia law, which is incompatible with the tenets of the U.S. Constitution, a pocket version of which Khan challenged Trump to read and claimed to revere because of its “equal protection under the law” provision.

Khan expressed outrage at Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. temporarily given an increasing number of terrorist attacks in the Middle East and Europe and the FBI’s admitted inability to properly vet refugees, particularly from war-torn Syria.

The Obama regime has admitted thousands of Syrian refugees and plans to take another 10,000 by the end of the fiscal year, according to media reports.  According to The Hartford Courant, Syrian refugees are now “arriving weekly” to the small state of Connecticut.

It is possible that Khan earned a law degree from Harvard after 1982, but that scenario would not be consistent with Politico’s report from last week stating that the family immediately settled in the Boston area after arriving in the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates.

Khan’s now-defunct website had said that his legal work included obtaining “investment” visas for foreigners, which Breitbart claims were primarily “Islamist.”

  1. Do we know if he truly had one of his son’s die in combat on our side? Obama has been infamous for creating characters he presents as real who have no bearing in or on reality. This man had a website (taken down a day or two ago) which he established to sell visas to Muslims and get them into the USA. He is a documented Muslim Brotherhood member. The MB IS a terrorist group…the daddy of all of them in modern times. Unless we know with certainty, IMO we should not trust Muslims.
